JT telephone directories will cost parishioners dearly if not recycled

June 12th, 2012 by Richard Lord

During the last few weeks JT (Guernsey) Ltd 2012 Channel Island telephone directory has been delivered to households and businesses in Guernsey.

Paul Taylor, Managing Director, JT (Guernsey) Ltd, said it was a commercial decision to distribute the unsolicited Jersey and Guernsey telephone directory to Guernsey properties.

This JT directory has been lying outside on the doorstep of an unoccupied property in St Peter Port for over one week (click image to expand - ©RLLord)

Households have received this telephone directory on door steps and in driveways.

Some households will welcome the new telephone directory but others will find it superfluous to requirements and may wish to dispose of it or recycle it.

Disposing of the JT telephone directory in household waste will add to parish rates to pay for Guernsey’s Mont Cuet landfill tipping charge so the best option if you don’t want it, is to recycle the telephone directory at a paper bring bank.

If this is not possible for whatever reason, JT (Guernsey) Ltd. has provided a free phone number 0800 735 1114 and an email address: directorydelivery @ JTglobal.com to allow householders to call or email and have their unwanted telephone directory collected.

This telephone number and email address can be used also for opting out of receiving the 2013 JT telephone directory.

The JT shop in St Peter Port will also accept any JT telephone directory that is not required so that it can be reused or recycled.

JT telephone directories have already entered the household waste stream because they are not wanted or because they have been damaged due to the manner of distribution.

The 2012 JT telephone directory weighs 1556 grams (dry weight) in its plastic wrapper so please do not dispose of it in household waste as each directory will cost a parish about 23 pence to dispose of at the Mont Cuet landfill, which is filling up fast.
